International Press Brief

United States - Iran Tensions

The death of General Soleimani, commander of the Quds unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, in Iraq by order of the American President, increased the level of tension between the two countries and across the Middle East. In retaliation, Iran announced that it would remove limits on enriching uranium and launched a missile battery against U.S. bases in Iraq. On the other hand, fearing a new conflict on national territory, the Iraqi Parliament has called all foreign forces to leave the country.

Turkish military operation in Syria

After the US withdrawal from northern Syria, Turkey has launched a military operation in the against the Syrian Democratic Forces, with fighter from the Kurdish YPG, long-standing allies of the United States. Suffering heavy casualties and lost territory, the Kurds are now negotiating support with Assad and Putin. What will be the impact of this new escalation in the Syrian conflict for Europe, the United States, and upon political and security dynamics in the Middle East?

Venezuela's Crisis

The launch of the last phase of Operation Libertad by Juan Guaidó, which the self-named interim president believed would lead to the resignation of Nicolás Maduro, deepened the impasse in Venezuela. In Latin America, the balance of powers is played between countries, but also the impact of non-regional powers, such as USA, Russia, China and the EU.
